CRTC Local Television


The Canadian Radio-television and Telecommunications Commission (CRTC) are having hearings that may decide the fate of the future of local Canadian television content.

"We need to collect what is ours or we need to walk away," said CTVglobemedia president Ivan Fecan. "We are not going to be here operating conventional TV unless we can make a business of it."

The broadcaster vowed it would black out popular shows, such as Desperate Housewives, and that it would be forced to continue to close small-town TV stations if it wasn't given the right to negotiate a fee for unprofitable local signals.

"The television station has the right to withhold its signal," said Paul Sparkes, CTVglobemedia's executive vice-president for corporate affairs.

Local producers are calling it the "TV Tax".
